    simple audio work?


    Have installed Knoppix on a friends pc so he can record tapes to hd and create cds from the ogg files and suchlike. Problem is that when he records with audacity the playback is ultra slow. Further problem is that if he tries to access the audacity settings the app crashes & burns!

    Even further complication is that he has no internet connection.

    I think it's a 500MHz, 128Mb machine.

    Any useful distros that come with an easy audio editor (audacity) and an easier encosing and burning app (k3b)?? Need something easy for recording on line in and also something that can copy cds and burn ogg files as well. GUI a must with this.

    Would also be nice to include openoffice or abiword for him as well.

    chill yo, personaly i have no clue about a distro with included audio editing suites, but wouldn't it just be easier to install it in a distro that is stable and fast? (mabey a trimmed down version of mandrake 10)

    medialinux is a possibility. but i have never used it, just heard of it.

    slax is another possiblity, i think it has audacity, could be wrong though. but slax is still a awesome small distro, 180MB.

    what's the rush anyways. and couldn't you just download it from http://audacity.sourceforge.net/ and just install it on any minimalistic distro.

    as a gentoo user, you could seethe benifits of a gentoo install from livecd and just adding the program, question, does the computer have NO internet at all, or just a dial up? and if you just need the service, sign up for netzero and just emerge the program after a disk install, will take a while, but will be under the 10 hour limit on netzero's free sccounts.

    He's got no internet at all. And it's something I'd have to install in 1 or 2 hours so Gentoo's out. Prob is I need to know if audacity and k3b (or equivalents) are included before I install.
